I didn't know they came with the LEDs too.
I would consider them since I'm going to hack up the rear end to get rid of alot of rust. I would probably have to reshape them though.

I like those guys since the product is good, and they are literally right down the road from me.

They don't come with them, but they were an option. You could get them with or without the lights.

I considered doing the steel light thing. Mainly because MJ tails are sooo overpriced. I have a mixed matched set with cracks in both but im not about to pay 100 bucks for a used pair of faded lenses that are 20 years old. But i would have to make my own or modify because I dont know of anyone who makes them for comanches.

Of course . One of the main reasons to consider a Jeep is off road use .
And , yes , I have smacked a few lens . Dang it . That can get expensive .

I like the idea of LEDs . Bright , like you say , they last almost forever and they reduce the amount of required power , so less stress on the system .

I simply don't care for the overly enclosed lights . Maybe it's the positioning and style of lights . The XJ is a real classic . Those lamps do little , if anything , to compliment the styling . Sure , they follow the body lines , but that's it . There are no other round exterior lights ( stock ) .

It just seems to me that for that kind of money , they should spend a little bit on having them look the part and do the job . They could even use the same box , less the round holes . I could do a better job and I have little experience in that field . Maybe They never received any suggestion on that count or maybe they didn't care for any ...

I like the quarter panel armor that goes out over the tail lamps but doesn't box them in, only covers the outer sides of them.

X2. The only issue I see with that is the sheer weight. That's a lot of steel! But those would cover whatever I end up chopping out, and probably look decent to boot with some alteration.

As for me I got my new rear stainless braided brake line installed. Put a new right side hard line bent and installed and got the left side bent but ran out of motivation and day light to install it. That was after running all the way back into town because a got a stick with metric thread, ooops! So I sat on the dock at my pond and drowned a few fake crickets and drank a few beers. Then ate a steak I cooked on my grill. All In all not a bad evening.
